Review: Siren's Song by Mary Weber

Title: Siren's Song
Author: Mary Weber
Series: Book Three in the Storm Siren Trilogy
Published By: Thomas Nelson (March 1, 2016)
Source: ARC Copy Provided by the Publisher (in exchange for an honest review)
Genre: YA/NA Fantasy
My Rating: 4.5 Stars!


Book Description:
Nym and Draewulf prepare to face off in a battle destined to destroy more lives than it saves.

With the loss of Tulla still fresh in mind, Rasha’s fate unknown, and Lord Myles taken over by the dark ability, Nym and the few Bron soldiers rush to warn Cashlin’s queen. Only to discover it may already be too late for the monarch and her eerie kingdom. As the Luminescents are sifting through Nym’s past memories and the queen is reading into her future, Nym is given a choice of how to defeat Draewulf, but the cost may be more than she can bear. And even then there are no guarantees.

With that reality burrowing into her bones—along with the guilt of the lives she will sacrifice—Nym returns to her homeland of Faelen to raise an army of peasants through promises of freedom. But when the few friends she has left, along with the world and citizens she loves, are staring down the face of a monster and his undead army, will Nym summon every element her blood is capable of controlling . . . or surrender to a different strength—one of sacrifice?

Because in the end, death may be more merciful for them all.







Weber created a world completely futuristic, fantastic, and so out there that is was hard not to get swept up in the realism that  manages to both be believable and unbelievable at the same time.

With a cast of strong characters and a fast moving plot, this series is something to stand up and take notice of. 

This truly is one of those rare series that not only grabs you and holds you from the first page but each consecutive book, only gets better. 

And this last book truly was unbelievable and by far, my favorite of the series.

Fast paced, plot driven and with a swoon worthy romance that gets better with time, this was an outstanding conclusion to what has become a favorite series for me and one I won't be forgetting soon.

  18. It's great when a series is good from beginning to end. I tend to shy away from fantasy, but you sold me and I added it to my TBR pile.
